"Not a Hall of Famer"

yup. you are 100% correct. usually, nfl players that have retired and have been out of the league for a minumum of four years can even be considered for the hall of fame...

the average hall of famer is 44.3 years of age when enshrined and has played an average of 13.4 seasons in the nfl. wilson isn't even close. russell has only played three seasons in the nfl and he is only 26 years old so that is usually a good indicator that he isn't a hall of famer.

wilson's record since he took over as starter is 36-12, a .750 winning percentage. most hall of famers have fewer wins and more losses in their first three seasons, like terry bradshaw for instance, who went 19-16 in his first three seasons. so wilson has THAT going against him...

wilson's stats also are a good indicator he might not make the hall. he has nearly 10,000 yards passing in his first three years, 72 touchdowns, only 26 interceptions and a 63.4% completion percentage. recent hall of fame quarterbacks in their first three years have roguhly the same average yardage passing per season, but also compile an average of 60 touchdowns and 60 interceptions their first three seasons. they also have a completion percentage of under 60 percent. so wilson definitely has THAT going against him...

finally, wilson has been to the super bowl twice during his three year career, winning one. most hall of fame qbs did not appear in two superbowls in that same timeframe, let alone winning one. wilson's playoff stats-- a .750 winning percentage, a 98.0 passer rating and a 2-1 touchdown to interception ratio does not stack up to a hall of famer like dan fouts, who never won a championship game, posted a 2-3 record, a 75.0 qb rating and a 1-1.4 td to int ratio in his first three years. definitely, wilson is no fouts.

finally, wilson has 1,877 yards rushing as a third year pro. a good numnber of hall of fame quarterbacks don't accumulate 1,800 yards rushing in their entire career, let alone a 6.2 yard per carry average. the average hall-of-fame qb only averages a fraction of the yards per carry that wilson does so that definitely is another strike against him. in fact, nearly 50 percent of hall of fame running backs do not average 1800 total yards in their first three seasons as pro, so wilson probably won't be in the hall of fame as a running back either.

so, in summary, if you are basing wilson's career on those of qbs already enshrined in canton, it doesnt look very promising. his numbers just don't match up.

(lol, i'm rolling on the fucking floor right now...)
